Maybe the Iraqis hate us for our freedom, maybe they hate us because we bomb the fuck out of them and murder civilians.
Estimates range as high as 250,000 civilian deaths in Iraq since we invaded in 2003.
Imagine Greece invaded the U.S., killed Trump and his family, started bombing towns, going door to door with machine guns, and had tanks rolling down main street. Imagine a quarter of a million Americans were killed. Do you think we would greet them as "liberators." If we fought back would that make us "insurgents?"
The young men and women growing up in the midst of the invasion would view Greece as lifelong enemies, purveyors of death and evil, and vow to do whatever it took to kill greeks.
DO WE HONESTLY THINK THIS IS MAKING US SAFER?
